CEAS Poster Competition 2021

2021 VIRTUAL Student Research Poster Competition

The annual Student Research Poster Competition (SRPC) is going virtual for 2021! We are excited for the 13th anniversary of this premier event at which undergraduate, master’s and doctoral students showcase both incremental and game-changing discoveries they’ve made through months and sometimes years of work in our labs and with our faculty.

Students present their research virtually with a prerecorded audio over PowerPoint presentation, translating the value of their work to an engaged audience of professional engineers. Through the spirit of competition, ideas are nurtured, exchanged, rewarded and sometimes even given a head start on a path toward innovation and commercialization. The process inspires students to press forward for more exploration, discovery and innovation.
